London, in the mid-19th century: the famous detective Gloria Scott and her faithful companion Mary Lambert are spending a quiet evening together. Right in front of their office, however, an unknown murderer kills Professor Janson, and they are faced with a new challenge. A distress call, carried on the wind, takes them on an adventure, where they uncover a great conspiracy involving the Archbishop of Canterbury, Madame Tussaud, the Holy Spirit in the body of a dove… and a few innocent victims. After a series of hazardous events and a showdown between Gloria, Mary and Madame Tussaud, the entire museum is burnt to the ground, and with it the only real villain in this story. That person is Professor Janson’s murderer, a young painter known only as A. H.
